Hi everyone, what another great week of athletics. We had about 173 athletes compete, lots of PBs and 2 Centre Records, Reece Trewhella U11B in the 1100m walks (6:58.35) and Sally Kiss U17G in the 1500m (6:26.59)- brilliant effort. This week we have Region Track and Field for 66 of our athletes at Doncaster and we have our U6-U8 carnival at Ringwood. For all other athletes, take a break and sleep in!!
Region Track and Field – Doncaster – U9-U17 athletes
66 Ringwood athletes have registered for this weekends Track and Field competition at Doncaster. We will have our marquees and flags setup so remember to bring sunscreen, hats, water and a comfy chair or cushion. All athletes must be wearing their official uniforms with no\minor logos on shorts, their coles patch and their Commbank patch. We cannot print your patch on the day – no patch no competing. All the details you need are via the link below and there will be duties required by all parents, these will be sent in a separate email shortly. Go Team Ringwood 💛💚🖤
We have our U6-U8 carnival this week where the younger athletes own the track. The program will be sent via socials and email and there will be BBQ and canteen available. Warmup is at 8:30 for an 8:45 start.
Raising funds for a good cause
This week’s BBQ revenue will be donated to Curtis Cooper (Archie Cooper’s dad) to raise money for his charity Bravehearts. Why are we doing this? Bravehearts is a charity that assists children who are and have been affected by child abuse, very appropriate for little aths. From July 1-8th 2024, Curtis will be running 7 marathons in 7 days in different states across the country, or 294km across WA, VIC, SA, TAS, NSW, ACT and QLD. Curtis will be working the bbq as well this Saturday, so please support this awesome cause by purchasing bbq items, good luck Curtis.
There will be no training on Sunday as most athletes and committee will be at Region. For all those athletes that are not participating at Region, enjoy a nice sleep in or head to the beach! There will be training on Tuesday.
Centre Games – Registrations opening soon
Our Ringwood championship day (Centre Games) is coming up very quickly. Expect to see a form to register athletes in the coming days – Keep a watch so you do not miss that end of season event.
Cross Country – We need a Team Manager
Cross Country is approaching fast and we are reaching out to parents now to express interest for the Cross Country Team Manager role. It’s an easy role that pretty much involves attending cross country on Sundays and assisting with queries, followed up by organising XC relays. Email us at Ringwood@lavic.com.au for more information. We need someone to step up so we can start season planning shortly.
